"I saw you at tho moving picture

plumber, "but when I looked for you
a little later I missed you."
"Yes, I got up and went home."
"When was that?"
"I left when the villain began to
lay n snaro for the wife of the man
who had to stay at his otllce on ac
count of business."

Original Expression, "Getting the
Dickens," Was Not, as Many
Think Something Profane.
Sometime, somewhere, from some
body we all get "the Dickens." And
those of us who become prominent get
it more than the others.
Among those of us ordinary mor
tals who occasionally find relief In let
ting off steam in the form of some
thing more expressive than Blnng,
there seems to be a common miscon
ception thnt "getting the Dickens" lg
a modification or abbreviation, of
(Heaven help us I) "getting the, devil."
It Is not. It is n harmless, legitimate
und respectable expression, that may
be used with Impunity In tho best of
company. It Is simply an allusion to
our old friend, Charles "Dickens.
Though immortal as a novelist,
Dickens was well known In his own
time as a newspaper man. So vitriolic
Is he said to have been In his at
tacks on faulty public olllcinls or other
prominent men that gradually it came
to be said, when any one was criticized
by him, that ho got "the Dickens."

ADVANTAGES OF GOOD ROADS

Tho way to make prosperity flow Into
any locality Is to build roads that

With good roads farmers can dellvei

within a radius of s'O or more mlos. and
by making more profit themselves thej
reduce the high cost of living for other
people; for merchants are able to take
advantage of new sources of supply tc
buy their stocks under favorable con
dltions. and sell them to their custom'
ers at a lower price.
